Intel Pentium Silver N5030

The Pentium Silver N5030 is a 4 core CPU from Intel released in 2019. This chip has an average overall score at 11% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is an average processor for gaming, with a score of 21%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the Pentium Silver N5030 scores 8% and 7% respectively. Indeed, this is a bad rating for very heavy workloads.

The Pentium Silver N5030 has 4 cores and 4 threads. This chip has no simultaneous multithreading support, as it has the same number of cores as threads. This Intel CPU has a clock speed of 1.1 GHz.

As for memory, the Pentium Silver N5030 makes use of DDR4-2400 memory. The faster the memory, the better. Faster memory means that the CPU doesn't have to wait to get the data it needs. It can accommodate a maximum of 8 GiB of memory. Furthermore, this chip can handle up to 2 channels of RAM, a multichannel memory architecture allows for higher data transfer between the CPU and the memory. However, to take advantage of this, you must have enough memory slots filled. Error correcting memory is not supported on this processor.

This CPU has fast connectivity with support for PCI-Express Gen 2. The faster the PCIe link, the better. This allows for better performance with GPUs and NVME SSDs. It has a total of 6 PCIe lanes.

Power and thermals for the Intel Pentium Silver N5030 CPU are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 6 watts. This measures the amount of heat the processor produces when running at full load. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's good estimate.
